The painters were back this past week to paint all the base boards since all the flooring is now in.
Michael is the man of the hour when it comes to his staining and finishing work and he has done such a fabulous job. He did the mantle this week and we couldn't be more pleased.
Todd finished up the grout work on the front porch and patio. There's just so many steps when it comes to tile and wood flooring. Makes me tired just watching them.
My pot filler was installed this week and I can't wait to try it out. I do so much "pot" cooking in the winter and I think I'm going to enjoy having water right there at the stove top. The dishwasher was also installed.
And, you may or may not know what this contraption is. It is a water softening system. We did not even know that we needed this until the house was under construction. I ran into a gal that lives across the street from our new house when we first began construction, and she said she sure hoped we were putting in a water softening system. Well, we had no idea that we even needed one. She began to tell me how damaging the hard water is to the faucets and how badly it stains the commodes and tubs. So, we immediately checked into what we needed and here it is. Looks like something a "mad scientist" might have developed, but regardless of looks, we're sure glad that we were informed early on about the need for one of these systems. But, I had to give up some space in one of my storage rooms for it's home. ~boo! hoo!~
And, this my friends, is what it looks like in our present home. Yes, it looks like two bombs went off! And, for a "neat freak" like myself it is wearing very thin but the end is definitely in sight. Well, we'll still be living among boxes at the new house but hopefully they will empty quicker than they were filled.
We have arranged for the professional cleaners to come a week from today and their work will take about two days. Behind them will be the window treatment folks to install the Plantation Shutters and shades and then the media man will install the sound system, wifi and TV's. THEN, it looks like that we just might be moving in sometime around the week of August 2nd or Aug. 10th. And, as far as Hubby and I are concerned, it can't be soon enough. Stay tuned............
Have a wonderful new week!
